Las Vegas—Canada-based Mercier Wood Flooring launched new flooring designs to meet the expectations of designers and homeowners looking for modern yet authentic and durable prefinished wood flooring.
Known for its grain that is quite like much-loved white oak with shades ranging from creamy white to medium brown, white ash features very visible growth rings. Its pale, natural tones fit perfectly with the current trends while bringing warmth and authenticity to all decors. White ash, already available in the Origins collection (natural, without stain) and Elegancia has been added to the popular Naked and atmosphere collections.
Mercier’s unique finishing process for the Naked collection gives white ash a European and decidedly modern look, according to the company, where this species’ contrasting colors are softened for a more uniform appearance. Available on the solid—and now on the engineered—platform, in authentic and distinction grades, white ash Naked is available in widths ranging from 3¼-inch to 6½-inch. It is offered in Mercier Generations matte and matte-brushed finishes.
In the Atmosphere collection, the addition of Breeze, Gleam and Silk colors on white ash increases the existing offering. They are available on the solid and engineered platforms in authentic or distinction grade depending on the width, and with Mercier’s Generations finish in matte and matte brushed.
Red Oak has always been one of the most popular species for wood floors. Although the wood itself remains unchanged, the unique coloring method developed by Mercier Wood Flooring produces a look that is different, according to the company. New colors Bliss and Halo, applied in transparency, advantageously softens the typical pink and red hues of this species. They are available in matte and matte-brushed finishes.
New colors Charm and Silk in the Atmosphere collection add even more options to this species known for its character marks, the creamy beige hues of its sapwood and brown accents of its heartwood. Wide boards in matte and matte-brushed finishes complete the look. White Oak is available on the solid and engineered platforms in authentic grade.
